4 Fun Things to Do in Manhattan This December

4 Fun Things to Do in Manhattan This December

Now that the holiday season is in full swing, there are plenty of festive activities happening in and around Downtown NYC. But what if you’re not feeling festive and want to do something other than stare at a well-lit tree or ice skate in the middle of a crowded Midtown park? Rejoice, as there are still plenty of exciting, non-holiday themed happenings all around the city.


Robert Kelly at Gotham Comedy Club

(December 22-23, Gotham Comedy Club, 208 West 23rd Street, New York)

You don’t want to miss stand-up comedian Robert Kelly’s honest, abrasively funny standup centered around deep-rooted life issues and failed relationships. Why not spread the holiday cheer with actual laughter?


New York Islanders Hockey

(Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn)

There are a few games left in the month as we head toward the end of the holiday season, so head to the rink and catch some Islanders hockey. Visit the Barclays Center event page for more information on games and ticket prices.


Holiday Train Show

We may have said no holiday-related activities, but you can’t be a scrooge all season. Spend an afternoon walking through enchanting model trains as they zip through a collection of displays recreated with real natural materials. While you’re there, peruse the New York Botanical Garden’s winter collection.


iPic Theatres

Stroll through the Seaport District and have yourself a movie night at iPic Theaters. See what’s playing and grab yourself a ticket. Be sure to go hungry, as there’s a full-service restaurant on premise ready to serve you during the flick.
